Look at the expect command. (yum install expect)

If you want the user to always be logged in at a specific VT, you
can edit /etc/inittab and change the line for the VT you want to
change. Look at the autologin option of mingetty. For example, to
have them logged in on VT2, look for:

2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty tty2

Change it to something like:

2:2345:respawn:/sbin/mingetty --autologin guest tty2
